In 2018, the RiskLens Academy provided FAIR education to more people than ever before. More than 600 learners participated in our live or online FAIR Analysis Fundamentals and FAIR Analyst Learning Path courses. Whether it’s from top-down direction from boards and senior management responding to regulatory pressure to disclose risk in financial terms, or bottom up from risk analysts looking for more effective ways to do their jobs than qualitative analysis, the risk profession is clearly moving in the direction of FAIR, the international standard for quantitative risk management. Another sign of the times: membership in the FAIR Institute includes eight of the Fortune 10 and about 30% of the Fortune 100 organizations.
David Musselwhite is the Training Lead for RiskLens Academy.
2018 saw the launch of the online FAIR Analyst Learning Path, intended to provide more advanced knowledge of FAIR by focusing on the hard skills needed to conduct a FAIR analysis. Four individual courses cover the four phases of the risk analysis process in depth: Scoping Analyses, Collecting Data & Estimates, Performing Quality Assurance, and Presenting Results.
With guidance and content from RiskLens’ entire Professional Services team, the best and most experienced team of FAIR consultants in the business, the Learning Path represents the distillation of decades of lessons learned from performing FAIR analyses in dozens of organizations.
